San Francisco 49ers LB Kwon Alexander (knee) is expected to return to the field in time for training camp, defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said.

  Redskins | More on Reuben Foster    Fri May 31, 08:15 AM

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins LB Reuben Foster (knee) had surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament and a lateral collateral ligament. He's already raising his leg and should be good to go for the 2020 season.

Footballguys view: Foster is going to miss this season and come back some time next year. We should see him limited in OTAs next offseason, but who knows how many staff changes happen for Washington between now and then.

  Redskins | Reuben Foster placed on IR    Wed May 22, 05:34 PM

Washington Redskins LB Reuben Foster (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, May 22.

Footballguys view: Foster goes down without ever playing a snap for Washington. We'll see how much damage was done to his knee as he'll take a year or more to fully recover. Foster's NFL future is very much in doubt, especially if the reports about artery damage in his leg are true.

  Chargers | Denzel Perryman medical update    Wed May 22, 02:34 AM

Los Angeles Chargers LB Denzel Perryman (knee) indicated he expects to be ready to go at 100 percent in time for training camp, though the team's medical staff will make the final determination on that.

Footballguys view: Perryman is a talented player but he's never played a full 16-game season in the pros. In fact, he's just logged 16 games total over the last two seasons. In 2018, LCL and hamstring issues landed Perryman on Injured Reserve after just nine games. Perryman may be ready to go 100 percent by training camp, but we'd imagine the Chargers are going to ease him back into action.

  Seahawks | Bobby Wagner looking for big contract    Tue May 21, 08:03 PM

Seattle Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner said he wants to sign a new contract that is better than the five-year, $85 million contract New York Jets LB C.J. Mosley signed this offseason. Wagner is attending the organized team activities but will not participate in practice because of his contract situation.

Footballguys view: It's a good faith move for Wagner to be there. Reports say Wagner is not open to taking a hometown discount, and with the way linebackers got paid in free agency that's not a bad move. Wagner is in the final year of his deal and Seattle has expressed interest in getting him a new deal. According to OverTheCap.com, the Seahawks have around $23.9 million in effective cap space at this time.

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins LB Reuben Foster (knee) has a torn anterior cruciate ligament, but there are also some worries about possible artery damage in his leg, according to a source.

  Redskins | Reuben Foster injury update    Mon May 20, 08:16 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins LB Reuben Foster (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during practice Monday, May 20, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Foster's 2019 season is now over. Washington picked up Foster on waivers last year once the 49ers were done with him due to off field issues. He'll now work back from this ACL injury and hope to be ready for the 2020 season.

  Redskins | Likely torn ACL for Reuben Foster    Mon May 20, 05:50 PM

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins LB Reuben Foster (knee) is believed to have suffered a torn left anterior cruciate ligament during the team's first organized team activity Monday, May 20.

Footballguys view: Reports indicate Foster was sobbing as he was carted off the practice field. Washington claimed Foster off waivers after the 49ers got rid of him after six games in the 2018 season. The 2017 first-round pick spent the remainder of 2018 on the Commissioner's Exempt List. He has been arrested twice on domestic violence charges and was trying to get his career back on track with a fresh start in Washington. Now, if this is a torn ACL, Foster will likely miss the 2019 season.

  Redskins | Reuben Foster suffers leg injury at OTAs    Mon May 20, 02:50 PM

Washington Redskins LB Reuben Foster (leg) was carted off the field with a left leg injury after getting hurt during the team's first organized team activity Monday, May 20. Foster is reportedly undergoing an MRI after stepping on the foot of an offensive lineman as he rushed a gap at three-quarters speed, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Footballguys view: Reporters on the scene are saying that Foster was sobbing as he was being carted away. That sounds like a serious knee injury, but official word should come in the near future.

  Cowboys | Jaylon Smith extension talks begin    Sat May 18, 11:46 AM

Dallas Cowboys LB Jaylon Smith has begun talks with the team on a contract extension, according to sources.

Footballguys view: A second-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft, Smith is in the final year of his rookie contract. The Cowboys have a lot of big contract to look at with guys like QB Dak Prescott and WR Amari Cooper coming up. Smith won't get a huge contract and may have to take a team-friendly deal.

  Jets | New York deals Darron Lee    Wed May 15, 09:42 PM

The New York Jets have agreed to trade LB Darron Lee to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: Well that didn't take long. Adam Gase took over as the interim General Manager on Wednesday and gets rid of Lee the same day. The Jets declined picking up the fifth-year option for Lee earlier this season and spent a ton of money to secure the services of ILB C.J. Mosley in free agency.

The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to acquire LB Darron Lee from the New York Jets in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs have been working diligently this offseason to revamp their defense. Lee has been a disappointment so far during his pro career, but we'll see if a fresh start in a contract year helps turn things around for the 2016 first-round pick.
